Photo ca 1871 of J. G. Griswold, Hartford, CT
I have been given several "Visiting Cards" from a friend who purchase them at an auction. I am attempting to contact someone that has a direct family connection to J. G. Griswold.
The card is approximately 2 1/2 inches by 4 inches and the cards were given when wishing to visit someone. The front of the card is a photo of an elderly bearded man. Handwritten on the back, J.G. Griswold, Hartford 1871. Printed on the back, E.P. and Wm. Kellogg, Photographers,, 279 Main Street, Hartford, Conn,
I am an avid genealogist for my family and know how wonderful it would be to receive a photo of any member.
